One of the most memorable things a parent can experience is their child with his/her first strike. The excitement continues with a wild jump up and down the bowling lane allowing the rest of the alley to see that joy. This holiday season, you can help relieve the boredom by bringing your kids on a new adventure. But, before you head down or reserve your lane, you need to know the five reasons why all kids love bowling.
Bowling and Arcades go Hand in Hand
From the beginning of time, children have always enjoyed spending leisure time at the arcade. From the sounds of skeet ball landing into the hole to the chance of knocking down a bunch of pins, kids have always enjoyed that game with the funny ball. Bring your kids down during the winter break for an indoor activity excellent for youth rain or shine.
Children are like by words like GutterBall
Children amuse easily by funny words. If you’re a parent, you’ve more than likely heard your boys and girls recite a phrase that makes them giggle. Well, words such as GutterBall and Spare come across as pure comedy to young kidlets everywhere. Just think of all the fun you’ll be having while enjoying their laughter.
Friendly Competitive Spirit
We are competitive by nature. At a young age, our little leaguers are learning the sense of feeling accomplished. Bowling is a sport that allows children to have a safe way to develop their skills along with strengthening muscles and things like hand to eye coordination.
Bowling is a Sport!
Bowling is an active sport that burns calories, helps with food digestion and keeps you in shape. Today’s kids are facing things like obesity and childhood diabetes. Kids love to be active and a part of a team. It’s yet another good reason for them to enjoy the sport of bowling.
They share their victory with their peers
Kids love to share their victories with their friends. Bowling allows parents to have the option to sign up for a league or come occasionally. No contracts, commitments or restrictions are involved, and it’s affordable. Furthermore, the kids love bowling when they can bring their classmates or family members to join in on the festivities.
There’s plenty of reasons to love bowling and kids are at the forefront of understanding those topics. Bring them by for the winter break, and you might fall in love with the sport too.

From the second my bowling alley fries were placed on the table, I knew I was in for a not so good night. The thundering of the alley crashed into my head. My bowling ball was getting heavier as I head toward my team. We were playing against Lou’s Diamond Girls, otherwise known as the Bombshell Ballers. These girls were terrible, and I had a lousy day seemingly about to get worse.
The lady of my dreams was on the opposing team in the tournament
While my day was stressed with work, my shoulders and body were tensing at the alley as the anticipation was building. Our team and I were at the tournament to beat. That is if you wanted to move into the pros. While becoming anxious to beat the opposing team, I dropped my ball pulling it out of my bag. I bent over embarrassed and frustrated to pick up my ball when I looked down to see the smallest women’s shoes along with bright laces.
Pink Flames Decorated the Woman’s Bowling Shoes
As the shoes were intriguing enough, I yearned for more. I glanced up and concentrated on Gail’s eyes. There she was with that red hair, and a bowling ball spray painted with pink flames. I was apparently in her way as she gazed deeply into my eyes and exclaimed: “Move out of the way slick!”
I Knew I wanted to Win her heart
After each one of Lou’s Diamond Girls scored one strike after another, I knew we wouldn’t win. But, I felt like a champ in her eyes. And just as I saw her walking away, knowing I’d never see her again, she asked me to hold her bowling ball with a smile. She started anxiously reaching for her keys in her bowling bag until she pulled them out with a sigh. When she arrived with her bag, she stared into my eyes once more and asked if wanted to join her league. It was then I knew we were destined to be together.
Throughout the years, bowling has been a favorite activity and now each one of my kids enjoys it just as much as we do. Well, I should say “our kids” and our grandkids” to be more correct. Even thirty years later we’re still destined to be in the alley of love.
Yep, she was and still is the love of my life and bowling was the vehicle that put us together. We re-visit often and again play in the same league. Even 30-years later, the game is fun and so is our favorite past time, with each other.
You should start a memory of your own too.

The Daunting Tasks to Halloween Madness
In most cases, Halloween means a mad rush to get the kids ready, head out the doors, hitting up every house in the neighborhood. After your children dash door to door, it’s time to head home and rummage through the mounds of candy only to throw away a vast majority because it looks suspicious. Then it’s time to tuck the lads and lassies in bed. Just when you think the house is finally quiet, you hear a little voice from the other room “I can’t sleep.” While you may be thinking, of course, you can’t sleep, you’re full of sugar, preservatives, and junk.

Bowling is not only a favored American pastime, but it’s also one some people take very seriously. When it comes to tools for either professional or recreational bowlers, the first tool that comes to mind is your bowling ball. In this week’s blog, we help you discover our ‘Best Choice’ selections for bowling balls. Ready, set, throw!
What Ball Should You Buy and Why?
When it comes to selecting the right bowling ball for you, there are many things to consider. First, you want to buy one that won’t crack or peel when throwing it down the lane. These sportsman’s tools need to be durable and withstand a lot of abuse. One of the best materials to buy is a urethane material with the proper weight. Determining the weight before buying your ball is vital to pick what will work best for you. Balls come in a variety of colors and weight. Pricing can vary greatly so we encourage you to try before you buy. Go to the bowling alley and spend a little time throwing every size ball you find on the shelves to see what feels the most comfortable.
Weight Matters When It Comes to Buying the Right Ball
The balls range in weight from 6-lbs to 16. Women and children will select a ball between 8 and 14 pounds whereas a man is more comfortable between 14-16 lbs. Heavier isn’t always better as many people feel more comfortable throwing a lighter ball. People seeking to do tricks, or throw with a spin, tend to go for lighter balls. Whatever suits you best is what you should choose.
Don’t Go for Looks Alone
One of the nicest balls on the market today is called the Moxy Exothermic Burst Bowling Ball. Not only does it look cool with swirls of color, but it’s also ideal for backend motion. This bowling ball is manufactured with a high resin finish making the ball careening down the lane with the utmost precision. If you want to learn more about very cool choice, then visit this link:
Next, Motiv’s Tribal collection is another top-notch ball that includes a halogen core. This ball is crazy cool and can help you throw a mean hook. The 70×40 @3.75” No Hole is one dynamite tool that will get you the results you want. We highly recommend this ball to be added to your bowling bag.
As with any sport, you need to have the tools necessary for such high performance. If you’re someone who is into the sport and not just an enthusiast, we suggest you visit a pro-shop that specializes in the sport of bowling. However, our staff may help you with more ideas.
Next time you want to throw your son or daughter a birthday party that they’ll never forget, take it to the bowling alley. Bowling parties can be a hit without having to spend much time and money on planning. We’ll take a look at a few cool food suggestions, games and decorating ideas for bowling parties:
Get the right supplies
First things first, figure out where you are going to get all the supplies you’ll need for your party. This includes items like cups, napkins and decorations for your party. You may also want to rent a bowling game, some small trophies for the kids and a bowling balloon.
Make your invitations cool and creative to increase the party attendance. You can do your own personalized invitations. Simple things like adding a bowling sticker on the invitations or a fun message will excite your guests and make them look forward to the party.
Bowling party decorations
When choosing your decorations, one thing you have to consider is the location of your party. Generally, you won’t have lots of places to decorate at the bowling alley. But if you are doing the party at home then you’ve got unlimited opportunities to decorate.
Bowling t-shirts for your guests
One thing you can do to get the guests excited is to give them matching bowling t-shirts. They will feel like they are part of a team. Look for inexpensive bowling tees and add a bowling pin on each. You can even write the child’s name on the bowling pin. If you will be celebrating the part at a bowling alley, giving guests matching t-shirts will make it easy for you to spot them especially if the event is on a day when the alley is crowded.
Best food and snacks for bowling parties
If the party is in a bowling alley, you may be required to buy food at their concession stand. Some bowling alleys allow you to come with snacks during your event. You can narrow down your food choices to only healthy snacks such as grapes, slices of apples and wheat crackers. If you will be throwing the bowling party at home or in a private garden, then you have lots of options on what to serve. You can serve hotdogs, popcorns, French fries and so much more. One good idea would be to serve your guests drinks inside a bowling pin sipper cup.
Choosing party favors
You obviously want to send your guests home with some cool favors that complement the theme of the party. There are so many bowling party favors that you can find online at a good price. A few ideas include: bowling pin sipper cups, candy and lollipops with cool shapes, trophies for the winning team and mini bowling games.
Start planning the bowling party early enough so that you don’t miss out on any aspect we’ve mentioned above. Remember that you don’t have to spend a lot on making this party work for you. Handmade decorations and homemade food can really help you to cut down on costs.
